Nigel Kennedy, who is often referred to as the rock star of classical music, does not approach the genre in a classical sense but rethinks pieces with his unique and daring style.
He made it into the Guinness Book of Records for selling the most classical music LPs, and for two years he led the classical music charts in Britain. His strengths lie in the most popular tunes of Bach, Beethoven, Berg, Brahms, Bruch, Mendelssohn, Sibelius, Csajkovszky and Walton.
Kennedyʼs mission is to familiarize as many people as possible with classical music and its modern renditions, particularly the younger generation.
